This is an amazing video that we found on web portal MSN, originally produced by the English-language edition of France24.

As can be expected, it focuses on the Southern Basque Country (south of the Pyrenees), but as we always say, we always include information from north of the Pyrenees whenever we find it.  We have a soft spot for that part of our country, as anyone who’s seen our Viewpoints section can attest to.

We’ll leave you with the article from MSN and the video France24 shared on YouTube.

The Basque Country, where fishing and surfing reign supreme

France’s Basque Country has two proud traditions: fishing and surfing. As we cross the coastline, we encounter plenty of fans of both. Travelling from the traditional fishing port of Saint Jean de Luz over to busy Biarritz – whose fishing heritage can still be seen in its old fishermen’s cottages – we come across one of the holy grails in the surfing world: the Parlementia Wave near Guéthary, which attracts thrill seekers from around the globe.
